Cookie Exchange Parties are SO MUCH FUN – for a few simple reasons:You get together with your friends
- You make only ONE kind of cookie and finish your holiday baking, after swapping out
- You get new recipes
- You often have snacks or games!
That being said, I do one every year – in December, about 2 weeks before Christmas. (You can read about it HERE or see a TV segment I did on it http://youtu.be/-iUR7GlAiQw).
I thought it would be fun to have a collection of 30 fun recipes to try – one a day in November – so you can be prepared for that holiday baking!
Today’s recipe idea comes from Country Living.
Use a basic sugar cookie recipe and divide the dough into 2 sections. Add food coloring to one batch and then, gently roll each color separately into ropes on a flat, lightly floured surface using the palm of your hand for best results. Brush off excess flour with a dry pastry brush before twisting the two colored ropes together. Chill 20 minutes before baking to help the cookies maintain their shape.
